Rogers steps down as Levy Institute director
Professor Steven Rogers is moving out of his role as director of the Larry and Carol Levy Institute for Entrepreneurial Practice to focus on other academic pursuits. He will remain on Kellogg's faculty as the Gordon and Llura Gund Family Clinical Professor of Entrepreneurship.
Dean Sally Blount thanked Rogers for his years of dedicated service.
"During his tenure as director of the Levy Institute, Steve has spearheaded countless initiatives and fueled tremendous enthusiasm for entrepreneurship as a field of study and practice at Kellogg," Blount said. "Under his leadership, Kellogg launched the major in entrepreneurship, started the Entrepreneur-in-Residence program, launched the Levy Student Entrepreneur Incubator, created the Alumni Entrepreneur Conference and developed 35 case studies in entrepreneurship, among countless other initiatives."
A much-admired educator in the classroom, Rogers has been named to the Faculty Honor Roll every quarter he has taught. He has received the Outstanding Professor Award from the Executive MBA Program 24 times, and he was voted the L.G. Lavengood Outstanding Professor of the Year in 1996 and 2005. "As we all know, Steve is beloved by our students," Blount said. "We're delighted he'll be spending even more time in the classroom."
